. that was one of the things that led me to think this is a useful idea for a book. >> overall, philosophically, how do you see the role of government, the role of congress, the role of the president in the economy? >> basically this book raises and answers the question. we need government to create a stable environment for businesses to function and create jobs. when government battles too much in the economy, its policies are driven by politics and markets are driven by individuals and the real world music people. that's the difference between what government does about markets do. you need government to protect us from fraud, from wrongdoers. there are wrongdoers the government can protect us from them. overly meddlesome government goes to fire and you end up suppressing enterprise and innovation and job creation. >> 2008 financial situation and the so-called bailout. are you supportive of that government intervention? >> release the question and answer of the book basically. you can see that as an emergency intervention. this government had done it back now, that would've been fine. unfortu

[laughter] despite their rudeness of the invitation, he is my friend. george well. -- george will. [applause] >> jack's invitation is perfectly acceptable. my dear friend william f. buckley once called up his friend charleton heston, the actor, and said chuck, do you believe in free speech? he said, of course. he said good, you are about to give one. it is a delight to be back here. it is a delight to be back on campus. long ago and far away, i was a college professor. in 1976, two of my friends ran for the senate against each other in new york state. the night they were both nominated, jim buckley got up and said, i look forward to running against professor moynihan. jim buckley is referring to you as professor moynihan. pat said, the mudslinging has begun.

. >> well, i have a little bit of a philosophical question for you, michael. the thought occurs to me that this is why we can't have nice things. we had the debt ceiling showdown. even before that, we had multiple threats of government shutdown over things like funding of planned parenthood and even if we get through this with a deal, we may have another debt ceiling showdown. are we at the point in history where we cannot get anything done and nothing will happen until we have one party in control again? >> well, no. i think we can get things done. although, this is coming from a person who's had to re'range vacation plans for three years because congress couldn't finish their work in until the last second. so, you know, when you hear mitch mcconnell on the senate floor saying we can do this, we have to do this, there's a sign saying, okay, when things are bad they can get together. i'm not quite sure why it has to be that bad, though, before they actually do something. i mean, almost everybody in this country could look at this and see it comes and say, okay, taxes are going up on j

. there are different philosophers. i talked about my friends that have been killed and working with city high school kids and talked about your duty to their experiences the friends who had been killed, and it was a personal discussion that we never would have had if it weren't for the provocation and at the end of its that's why i never should have said this in the first place. free speech as a moral high ground. they tell you what to say so never see that. like a lot of private colleges it has pretty restrictive speech codes and i know you've talked a little bit about the whole guarantee of the free speech but there's still a lot fewer tools. it's a lot harder to make the case for free speech and private universities how would you recommend we go about that? >> i don't spend too much time on that because i write so much about this. i have some real religion but the distinction of private and public colleges but the answer this question a lot. the first amendment applies to the public colleges. it doesn't apply to the public. there's something called the leonard law that applies the first amendment

the universities of historians and philosophers and they got them to go west or they exile them internally in central europe. they encourage more scientists and engineers. the founders would have known this. you need the historians and philosophers to look way over the cliff to the mountains and beyond. talking about creating incentives to do -- you have to have people that are imaginative who can look beyond the current crisis. that has been part of the american middle class, new ideas. >> i agree with that. i would like more of an emphasis on science and math. in terms of the k through 8th grade. >> absolutely. a young physicist learning how to do problem sets started going back to the questions of uncertainty and the relativity theory and became more philosophical. if you're just doing problem sets, you are not thinking about the deeper ideas or setting the framework for thinking will be on the cliff to the future. >> do you have a question? >> i fear that we have a burgeoning student loan problem in our country. it is the only form of consumer debt that has increased substantially. peo
, becoming a important political philosopher. see, the kind of thing that's in that book lays the groundwork -- i don't mean i laid the groundwork, but the nature of the tough that's in there -- the stuff that's in there lays the groundwork for political philosophy. law is about ideas. you can't -- when you get an important case, almost any case, you can't go to the library and pick up a volume that'll tell you where the answer is. it's not there. you have to, you have to have a background and a desire to engage in a philosophic enterprise not in constructing a new constitution, but in interpreting the present one and filling in the gaps where there are gaps. i don't mean, i don't mean if the constitution doesn't mention something you make up something, but take the first amendment. congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech. we know that they didn't mean no law abridging the freedom of sweep. that would mean you couldn't have a law against inciting mutiny in the navy. that would mean you couldn't have a law against people jumping up and down in a courtroom and screaming. we
record, sort of. in the interest of time i'm leaving out inappropriate limericks about philosophers. the only time i saw him lose his temper is when we were sharing a double room in the last year. some of the lessen lightened brethren decided to make a bunch of noise during finals week. when yelling at these guys didn't do the trick, chris burst out of bed, ran out onto the balcony, grabbed a water fire extinguisher and let them have it. he seemed much less angry when he came into the room and particularly pleased when the guys that he drenched came running up the stairs yelling my name. [ laughter] ambassador stevens did not correct the record. i feel this is a rare example of a failed diplomatic effort on his part. [ laughter] >> he did seem to sleep remarkably well after that, however. another topic a propos with chris is his relationship with material things. he didn't care about things, accept to the extend they were a means to an end. providing access to people, places, culture and activities he wanted to participate in. i wanted to mention a couple of examples from the uc ber
for students to develop their moral philosophical voices, so the question i have for you given the current climate, economically and politically, can we afford to separate out this conversation from the larger political and economic conversation that confronts the whole state? and what's the role of this body, educators community leaders in making sure we fund the kind of interventions and developments that lead to division you have described so beautifully. >> can i get one person to answer that? >> real quick. i think the idea that we can help young people and dawlts learn and growth mind set and have to advocate for more time to learn. the reduction in adult learning in schools is damaging all of us as a whole entire state, so i think you're absolutely right, but to then also understand that helping young people have a social filter, executive function and make life's choices. we know about brain development but we can help young people to make good decisions and we stripped that out and doesn't incorporate that and social emotional learning and other folks to say we should in fact
niemeyer lived in rio de janeiro all his life. he was born in 1907 and was philosophical about the passage of time. >> i think everything passes, including my architecture. but i did everything with enthusiasm, and that is good. life is like a dream. >> oscar niemeyer was a committed communist, who wanted his works to be used by the masses. in terms of form, he was a great experiment. many of his buildings featured curves he once said were inspired by the female body. >> we're going to be taking a short break, but we will be coming back with more news, so don't go away. >> stick around. >> welcome back. the european football championship in 2020 is said to take place in cities across the continent, marking the event's 60 of anniversary. the decision comes from the sport policy governing body -- the sport's governing body. >> until now, one or two countries have hosted the finals. earlier this year, 13 possible venues were suggested. he said the the will spread the financial load of hosting the tournament. the bidding process to hold games is due to start early next year. >> for more on tha
felt disoriented, exiled. the changing perception of nature, religious views, philosophical and political opinions, botanical knowledge and idiomatic sounds, everything new. i asked myself many times for a specific reason why my irish family went to cuba and began searching for missing pieces of my irish history in irish, cuban, and catalan archives to discover before me that i had a fascinating history of displacement and transformations in various geographic setings. my book, ticket it ride, is a personal journey towards the past and the present. there is no one but many places i belong to: havana, dublin, mahon, barcelona, and since the lay 80's, the bay area. so thank you very much. . >> i'm going to do this in about 5 parts. i hope you will bear with me. first of all, i want to thank cross roads for inviting me. it's a great pleasure for me to be here and i want to thank, in particular, professor mcfeek and hillary flynn, who made this possible. i'm going to first read from blood feud, sort of give you a small portrait of the protagonist in the novel. kenny had the soft
